Dewey's was great. A simple shrimp shack with tables dockside. The food comes in baskets. Great value and the seafood is fresh. We had the stuffed shrimp which were Very large. Also tried scallops, steamed shrimp, fried shrimp, and the gumbo. Everything tasted fantastic. The gumbo was excellent and spicy...sniff sniff. Just like it should be. Check it out.

This is a very casual place to eat on the bay.. We walked up and stood in line to place our order. They take your name and when it's ready they bring it to you.. We were there for the beautiful sunset!!! The food is awesome and the service as well!!!! We will be back : )

Been here 3 times. Excellent. The grilled shrimp on a skewer is outstanding. Grouper is excellent as well. Nothing fancy at all. In fact, the opposite. Picnic tables. Order at window. Adds to the fun of the place. Right on water. Friendly staff. Get there early or go for lunch.

We had been told by many ppl to try this place out while on vacation. So we did. The food had NO flavor at all. I got shrimp, new potatoes and corn. I also got a small cup of what I think was butter. The only thing that had flavor was the salt I put on the new potatoes. My... More

We have been to Dewey's many, many times over the past years and have never been disappointed. We try and get there every month or so but it seems that this summer we have made the trek (in the traffic) more often than not. The fried shrimp are always perfectly cooked and perfectly seasoned. The view of Crab Island doesn't... More

The food here was great. We went to the newer one just down from the harbor area. We sat outside and had a nice harbor few. The shrimp was great. Also had some seafood gumbo. When walking out the wait was 2 hours and this was on a Wednesday night. So get here early if you don't want to wait.
